We're pretty into podcasts over here.

Stephen listens to them on his way to and from work and I listen to them while I'm playing with Lydia/making dinner/doing the dishes/driving in the car/etc. so much of our evening+dinner conversation revolves around a podcast one of us listened to that day.

One concept that is often talked about in podcasts we both listen to (him, me) is the concept of "side-hustles." A side hustle is something you do outside of your full-time job that you enjoy and earns you a little extra money.

Since I consider parenting Lydia my full-time job, my photography and this blog are both "side hustles" for me, but Stephen hasn't ever had a "side hustle" and while eating dinner a few weeks ago we started brainstorming ideas for something he could start.

(We have a few ideas for side-hustles we want to do together in the future, but we wanted to find him something in the meantime.)

The next morning I saw this post on instagram calling for a "Dad's Eye View Blogger." Since Stephen is a very talented writer and writing is something he enjoys doing, I immediately sent the information to him. He quickly wrote-up an email with a few blog post ideas, sent it off that night, and within a few days he was hired!

We both find it mildly hilarious that he is now a weekly contributor to a blog sponsored by Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine, but personally I find it increases his man-cred rather than diminishes it 😏 (which he was worried about for only a short time before accepting the position, haha).

Maybe I'll have to pester him into guest posting on my blog sometime now that he's a legit blogger with his own bio and everything. 😏😂

I will take the time to explain things to you and provide you with honest advice, to what is best for your situation.

    I perform my Rituals only at night between the hours of 0.00 - 0.59 (South African time) lasting 1 hour but of course, this depends on the nature of the ritual, some rituals might take hours and can also become necessary to be performed at specials places like; flowing streams, cemeteries and other places dictated by the gods.

    I do not want anyone to be under any illusions about my spells and its numerous rituals. Real and effective Voodoo is no child's play, it is expensive because, after the rituals, I will have to destroy all the materials involved by fire and the ashes scattered over a flowing stream or river.
